👩🏾‍⚕️Arthritis, heart disease, thyroid problems, diabetes. . These are the diseases that run in my family. . Making changes for myself has been a journey and educating my parents on how they should also take care of themselves has presented its own set of challenges. Not because they aren’t receptive. But because the culture doesn’t lead to a healthy lifestyle. . So many oily foods. The rice, the naan, and those dang samosas! Don’t get me started on the mithai!🤦🏽‍♀️ . Fitness is also something that is now being stressed in the younger generation but not so much in that of my parents. . But by making small changes in myself and sharing them with my parents, they are also making healthier decisions that puts me over the moon.🙌🏾💯 . They now eat smaller portions. They drink more water. They limit their chai time. They eat earlier. And NO MORE RICE!! . Along with losing weight, I see how they are happier. My Mom has also been relentless on her daily PT exercises and takes time for self care, which is HUGE for her, as many of you South Asians out there can relate. . I am so proud of them and it goes to show you, that we have the power to bring in healthy changes even for our parents. And even with their age, they can still make change!💘 . The holidays are coming up and many of you will be with your families. Why not learn a bit to share with them? I guarantee it will bring you closer together and you will get healthy together. 👊🏾 . ⚡️⚡️Drop me a DM and let’s get Healthy through the Holidays with our families TOGETHER! #liveyourbestlife . . . #Brownandproud #Indianamerican #pakistaniamerican #desigirl #browngirls #firstgeneration #southasian #browndoctor #brownandproud #livetinted #nursingstudent #salwarkameezsuit #pharmacystudent #engineeringwoman #blendedfamily #asianamerican #familyofimmigrants #premedmotivation #jacksonheights #brownfamily #foreigndoctor #browngirlmag #medicalschool #womeninscience #desifamily #womeninstem #indopaki #indianchristian #pakistanichristian

Another Pregnancy🤰🏽*SUNDAY FUNDAY*🥴 . Today’s moment was captured by my awesome husband💍 while running errands. . I have become a master at creating seating out of thin air ANYWHERE we go to. Today’s royal seat is a bucket of “something🤷🏽‍♀️” in a hardware isle. I thought once I hit my 2nd trimester, my nausea🤢, sickness and fatigue😓 would go away. But looks like the TWINS have other plans. 🙃🙃 . I will say, the last two weeks I have had more good days than sick days!😅🤸🏽‍♀️ Today was just not one of those days. #twins #twinmom #infertility #faith #support #inspiration #awareness #family #morningsickness #pregnant #2ndtrimester #positive #affirmations #motivation #specialmoms #family #stepmom #blendedfamily

The holidays are hard. • • I think that it is super important to remember that we do not owe our blood relatives a relationship. • • I am, quite frankly, tired of people making me feel guilty for not attending family functions that make me uncomfortable or are damaging to my peace and my mental health. • • I know my family loves and cares about me to an extent, but their opinions about my “choices,” gender identity, and lifestyle have been voiced and that is not something I can ignore when I’m in their presence, especially because I have yet to fully process that emotional trauma. • • So with that being said, I will only be attending holiday functions where I am safe, accepted, and loved without conditions. • • AND I don’t owe ANYBODY a relationship. • • Ps. Here’s a cute photo with my three babies. I love them so much and cannot wait to see my favorite time of year through their eyes. 🎄🎅🏼 • • #fostercare #thisisus #thisisfostercare #oneofthem #pride #holidays #holidayseason #nonbinary #enby #transmasc #trans #nonbinaryparent #christmas #nontraditionalfamily #blendedfamily #theythem #familyisntalwaysblood

What a lovely way to end our weekend, cruising up and down the beach. The ocean is my haven, my safe space. The place I know that can calm my nerves in an instant. Family time is so important and we make sure we spend a lot of time with each other as much as we can.

THE LONG GAME . As a divorced parent, it's easy to feel a strong urge to rush away from our problems (our ex) and go the rest of the way alone or, at least, far from him/her. . Honestly though, it is vastly more fulfilling (yes, fulfilling!) to work together with our ex, overcome our past, and learn to respect each other while negotiating & navigating our way through co-parenting--this will always be the best way to play the long game of parenthood. #thecoparentingcollective .

I was tired of sobbing on Sunday nights. Tired of feeling like my life and children’s lives were slipping away from me. And just plain tired. 😭 . I saw a young woman about my age posting about her unicorn lifestyle (haha) and figured she had some advantage to life that I didn’t. But then I LEANED IN to her message about trusting Christ, leading with her heart, and overcoming obstacles to live a life on her own terms. . And she wanted people to join her. . I was skeptical. Hesitant. Unbelieving. And yet... . I had to at least find out more!! I loved health, nutrition, and working out... and I definitely had the desire to get better while helping people! But how?! . I told her I’d learn more. And because I put my fear and pride aside for a little bit, my entire life is better. Literally every single aspect. . Why not you, love? I am looking for more people to join my team, and on Tuesday night we are talking about what we do, the vision & purpose we have, and how we can help you achieve your dreams, too! . Drop an emoji below or DM me “webinar” and I’ll get you the link to join! 🥳 I pray that you also are just one decision away from a pivotal moment in your life! 🙏🏼🙌🏼

Introducing someone new to your child should be done with a lot of thought and care. @m_smithdejo knocked this scavenger hunt out of the park. A day full of learning and appreciating who will be introduced into her life very soon. Everything had a meaning from the meal to the Cat in the Hat book. gf #daughter #scavengerhunt #learning #blendedfamily

"Needing some advice on a personal level.. not really anything to do with being a sm. So.. my mom about 2 years ago abused my father. She is an alcoholic and has been since I was a child. About 11 years ago she stopped being a functioning alcoholic and couldn't keep a job. My father had to call the cops and it destroyed my dad. She wasnt allowed to come anywhere near my dad. She came around the house again and assaulted my dad again. This time my older brother was there and had to call the cops again. My uncle was also there as well. I feel sick to my stomach anytime I think of my mom. Now my fhs mom was an angel. She passed away almost 3 years ago. When she was dying I spent most of the time with her. I was on medical e.i. so we hung out together a lot. This time every year my fh and i miss her a lot and all i can think about is how my mom she be dead and his mom alive. I feel bad this is the way I feel. My fh keeps asking my what's wrong and I dont know how to tell him how I feel Because he believes I should reach out to my mom and start a relationship with her.. I should also mention she started harassing me and threatening myself my fh and my ss. He doesnt understand how I can "waste" my relationship with her. I just wish she was dead and my mother inlaw was alive. I laid in bed for 3 hours this morning because if I got up my ss would want to so something and I just want to cry. I feel so depressed. And bm ended up wanting ss home early. We were suppose to have him until tomorrow and now because I didnt want to get out of bed I didn't get to spend time with my ss. I worked until 4 am last night" . . . . . #stepmom #stepmother #stepmomadvice #bonusmom #stepchildren #stepkids #stepdaughter #stepson #bonuskids #blendedfamily #family #bonusson #bonusdaughter #love #stepparenting #parenting #coparenting #bonusfamily #stepparents #stepparent #marriage #relationship #son #daughter #children #kids #mom #dad #child #like

It’s never too late. Promise. ❤️ 👉 I start fresh pretty much every Monday! 😉 (Especially this one...when I ate LOTS of gooey warm COOKIES over the weekend!) ⭐️ Seriously, it’s about consistency and a team that’s waiting for you to show up and CHEER 🎉 you on no matter what!!! ⭐️ Accountability is KEY 🔑 to LIVING a healthy 🍃 LIFE!!! 🗣Our parents taught us and we may or may not have listened. We maybe even rebelled against RULES. But, RULES is what kept us safe and RULES will continue to help us in the future. Just because we CAN do something, doesn’t mean we should. ⭐️ Take control! (No more diets. No more excuses.) Make yourself a PRIORITY and start having the ENERGY ⚡️ to do the things you WANT to do and take care of the things you NEED to do! Open Enrollment is NOW for my virtual FitCamp and as your coach, I will do this with you and TOGETHER WE WILL WIN!! 🏆 ⏩ (Video 🎥 is of my “before” and “after” pics. I lost 20 lbs and gained my confidence back.)
